the (in)famous 3d demo on falcon. it's in some ways a step forward, and in terms of code a massive step back. the graphics are nice. scenes are also well done (for those days on falcon). music is cool, but in low quality.

it was slagged into the ground by loads of coders, including me, i must admit. in retrospect, i must still give winio credit for trying such complex screens. nobody else did that in those days. cheers. :)

let me rephrase that a bit.

i want to point out that 3d isn't everything (certainly not if it's just static stone henge type scenes). the style is of course very much ripped from pc. it's not original at all.

but, i want to stress that it was a brave move from winio and folks to bring it to the falcon. cheers for that.

there, hope that clears things up...

polish style ;) ... well a video recorded on an accelerated falcon could look nice.

Style and music are ok, but did i say that i hate slideshows?! and on a bog-standard-machine this is one...

This would probably be really nice on a quick Falcon, the problem is that the demo doesn't work on them!

It seems like the camera paths run out of data and then the camera goes mayhem and eventually crashes the demo. It would be nice with a cleaned up version for sure.

I seem to remember Mikro doing a cleaned up version for the CT2 (fast '030), where it still isn't quite fast enough to be honest, but you still get the same issue with it crashing if you run it on an '060. Otherwise yes, anything at the top end would seem to be this demo's natural home.

Not bad, but on a standard Falcon it´s really slow and you get a slideshow-feeling.

ahh, excellent soundtrack saves this rather slow demo

ah well... quite slow... dunno if you can call this animation... it's more a slideshow ;)

Didn't enjoy this in the slightest! The scenes aren't that complex and yet they are dead slow, even when there's just a single object rotating on screen. And the texture mapper is even inaccurate (gaps) and still THAT slow? Not even the music saves this demo for me, sorry.
